Interesting story in the Times today about the potential political direction of the so-called Torygraph.

For the benefit of our foreign readers who can’t access the Times I’ll reproduce the most important bit

Lord Black of Crossharbour, the proprietor, tells The Times in an interview that he admires Tony Blair and has never forgiven the Tories for “knifing” Margaret Thatcher in 1990. Asked why the Telegraph always had to be a Conservative paper, he replies: “It doesn’t and it won’t.” It won’t? “Not necessarily,” he says.
